Cape Town - Gisele Bündchen is the cover star of Vogue Italia’s October issue, but she doesn’t quite look like herself.

The special issue is celebrating the 60th career anniversary of Mina Mazzini, one of Italy’s most iconic singers of all time, and in turn portrays the Brazilian model and actress as the musician.

For the cover – photographed by duo Luigi and Iango – Gisele’s long blonde locks have been traded for red wavy curls.

She is dressed in Dior and is sporting deep red lips and large gold hoop earrings.

Sharing the cover on Instagram, Gisele wrote: “It’s always fun when I get to play different roles while modeling and feel what is like to look completely different.”

Speaking about the special issue Vogue Italia Editor, Emanuele Farneti, said: “We wanted to celebrate not only Mina the performer but also Mina the extraordinary creator and influencer of style, and her impact on fashion, on beauty, on pop culture.

“We asked a number of photographers and stylists, both Italian and international, to reference her image.”
